Trivia:

Has written a Vietnam war script titled "Khe Sanh" which Tom Hanks will produce and star in. Broyles has also written a Western about cattle ranchers titled "Tom Harris" which Harrison Ford is currently rumored to star in. See more »

Trademark:

A character in his screenplay is technologically dependent but is cast into a situation where he must rely on his instincts and intuition, rather than his technical know-how (Cast Away (2000), Apollo 13 (1995), Planet of the Apes (2001)). This is based on his experience as a Marine infantry lieutenant in Vietnam.
